I met Asaf Blasberg just a few short months ago, in preparation for Paul Marinaro's debut concert at Birdland New York, I have been simply blown away by Asaf's professionalism, flexibility, and technical mastery, all aided greatly by his obvious love and knowledge of music.
We were in the process of making a film about Paul, and it was imperative that we get a truly professional recording of his performance for use in the film, as well as potential musical releases.
As a professional musician himself, and one very familiar with the Birdland venue, Asaf was the perfect choice. He immediately put us at ease with his comfortable style, knowledge and expertise.
When Paul requested separate audio tracks to ensure the best sound possible, Asaf creatively found a way to accomplish that, producing, in Paul's words "Fantastic" sound!
Asaf provided us with a two-camera filming and a multi-track audio recording from the venue's digital mixer, allowing maximum flexibility in producing films and audio tracks from the performance. As a bonus, he produced one complete clip with audio so that Paul could go up on Facebook almost immediately following the concert with a great clip for his fans who could not attend.
All in all, tremendous technical AND artistic work by Asaf.
